April 23rd Update

April 23, 2020

Important message regarding Family Link and grade status for 4th grade:

Hello from 4th grade (Mr. Knoblauch, Ms. Hooker, Ms. Webert)

The three of us want to follow up regarding the school wide communication that was send out yesterday.

It stated in the email and telephone call that “Some packets are still being graded.”

Please note that all 4th grade packets (#1) have NOT been graded, so you will NOT see a grade for your child in Family Link at this time.

As soon as we have the results from packet #1, we will update Family Link and follow up with an email to you stating that your child’s grades are ready to view. If you need the login information we will be happy to provide it to you at that time.

Once again we thank you for your patience and understanding during these challenging times.

Hope everyone is well!

Packet Information for All 4th Grade Students

April 7, 2020

 

Dear 4th Grade Parents and Students,

 

The past few weeks have been a challenge for everyone. We are doing our very best to fulfill the requirements for the final quarter of the 2019-20 school year. We are attempting to alleviate some of the stress involved with sharing technology in your homes while maintaining consistency for all students. Therefore, 4th grade is adopting the paper copy packet for ALL students.

What this means:

  • The first packet (which was distributed prior to the break) is to be returned to the school on Wednesday, April 15th between 6am-9am. (Ms. Hooker, Ms. Webert and Mr. Knoblauch will tell you exactly what needs to be turned in for each of our subjects.)

 

  • When you drop off packet #1, you will pick up packet #2 and #3. Both of these completed packets will be returned to the school on Wednesday, May 6th between 6am-9am.

The three of us will continue to provide online support and enrichment through Zoom at our scheduled times.  As directed by the school, “Zoom classes are supplementary in nature and will be viewed as extra credit for the class.” We encourage you to attend as often as possible. We miss our students!

 

Supporting our students and your families,

 

Mr. Knoblauch, Ms. Hooker, Ms. Webert

  • Tear out or photocopy these pages and return them to the school on Wednesday, April 15th between 6am – 9am (you will also be given packet #2 and #3 at this time)

 

  • I strongly recommend that students complete the chapter review on  pages 102-104 before they tear out the other pages.  Leave the chapter review in the textbook.  We will need this for Packet #2

 

DO NOT:

 

  • Do not submit the other items that were part of packet #1 or part of the student notebook. For Example:
